Hiking Trip - Mhaydse Rachaya - Rachaya District

  • We are heading this time on a nice trail in the Bekaa valley, specifically to Mhaydse, a small yet beautiful village in Rachaya district.
    Mhaydse is a very special historical village located between Al Rafid and Kawkaba. What’s really unique about this village is that it’s the only village in the region that was not destroyed by the French government during the occupation.

    Our hike will be inside and around this village, accompanied by beautiful views and breathtaking natural settings along the way.
    All levels will start together on a moderate uphill track surrounded by the beauty of the Bekaa valley. Once done with this ascent, the group will be divided into two levels:

    LEVEL 4 (8 km) – will take the trail back to the center of the village and enjoy the beauty of this typical village. They will then visit a museum where plenty of old equipment and French occupation remainders are exposed.

    LEVEL 6 (13 km) – will continue on a fairly harder track around the village passing by natural caves engraved in the exceptional rocky nature of this area. We will then reach an old oak forest and enjoy its shades.
    All levels will then meet in the piazza of the village for lunch. We will also have the chance to buy local products that this region is famous for.
